Say It Forward

There really aren’t many things more special and appreciated by any blogger than a thoughtful comment left by a bloggy friend. Bloggers truly do live for them.

When I sign on and see a new comment sitting there, well it makes my day! A pretty wrapped gift handed just to me amongst all those other options out there in blog land. Comments truly are the jewels of the blog land. Leaving a comment is like walking up to a new friend IRL and introducing yourself. It is how we make friends in the blogland.

How can we thank our loyal friends and readers for giving us these bloggy treasures? First and foremost, we can return the favor! We can visit their blogs and leave them comments. “The golden rule of blogging – do unto others, as you would have them do unto you. It makes the blogosphere go round.”

I love the idea of a pay it forward anything. I think anything positive is a good thing. So it really made my day when I signed on and sat down to google reader and found Diana’s wonderful comment. Stop by Forgetfulone and say hello, she’s become a good friend and I know if we lived closer we would be great IRL friends. So in the spirit of this SAY IT FORWARD I start with Diana. I too can’t remember how we met, it probably was Pay it Forward book exchange over at Overwhelmed with Joy, but we’ve been great friends since.

There are so many wonderful bloggers that come to mind when I think of passing this on. I think I’ll do one every week or so versus all at once. So I won’t start with the obvious (at least to some) and mix it up a bit by starting with Jen from Tatertots and Jello and adding her to this list today. I’m not sure how we met, whether it was a meme or something else, but she pops by regularly and offers great positive thoughts to my day.

final blog signature.


Tamy – you are so sweet!!! I don’t know how I missed this last night! Thank you so much! I really love coming over here and getting all of the great recipes, ideas and positive attitude – you rock!



I agree, I have made some wonderful friends in Blogland! I just wish I was better about keeping up with all the blogs (and cough*thosethatblogsdaily*cough). hehe

Cheers, great idea!
